The Week In Rap: Earl Sweatshirt, Action Bronson, & Major-Label Rap’s Age Of Weirdness

Not that long ago, major recording companies employed whole offices full of people whose whole purpose was to shape and mold rappers, to turn them into hitmakers. Maybe those people still exist. Maybe they're up late at night, trying to figure out how to make Kid Ink happen. But the big labels, for the most… More »

Gunplay – “Scuffed Timbs” (Feat. Rick Ross) (Prod. Timbaland)

Gunplay's debut studio album has been perpetually in limbo for a few years now, but it looks like it could finally be getting a release. After a few false starts and a handful of mixtapes, including this year's self-titled, Living Legend is scheduled to come out early next year. "Scuffed Timbs" is a new… More »

Download Gunplay Gunplay Mixtape

Well, here's something awesome. Fuming Florida rap spitfire Gunplay has been making a habit out of rapping harder than anyone else in the universe for a few years now. And now, with no real warning, he's dropped a massive self-titled 19-track mixtape. Gunplay has guest appearances from Rick Ross, Curren$y, N.O.R.E., Cormega, and Birdman. I… More »

Gunplay – “Kush” (Feat. Lil Wanye & Rick Ross)

Gunplay might finally be getting a shot! The out-of-control Miami rap firebrand has been kicking around the margins of Rick Ross's Maybach Music empire for years, recording furious amazing bug-eyed verses and generally solidifying his rep as rap's great scene-stealing wildman, but there's been almost no talk of him getting his own album. But now,… More »

Gunplay – “Gallardo” (Feat. Rick Ross & Yo Gotti) Video (NSFW)

Gunplay is one of the greatest headknock rappers currently walking the face of the earth, and he's also a part of one of rap's most popular crews. And yet the closest he'll come to a mainstream breakout moment might be this deeply NSFW strip-club video with Rick Ross and Memphis knucklehead Yo Gotti. Whatever, I'll… More »

Download Gunplay Acquitted Mixtape

The steamroller-voiced Miami rap psychopath Gunplay recently came off of house arrest, and that means he's free to crank out as much furious bug-eyed thud-rap as he could possibly want. But with Acquitted, his new mixtape, Gunplay's limited himself to nine new songs, plus an intro, and the only remotely famous guest-rapper is Young Scooter. More »

Gunplay – “Bible On The Dash” Video

Gunplay, Maybach Music's resident knuckle-throwing knucklehead, is both one of the most fearsomely unhinged rappers on the current rap landscape and straight-up one of the most gifted rappers out right now. One of the man's crowning achievements is "Bible On The Dash," a track from last year's 601 & Snort mixtape that gives some… More »

Gunplay – “Drop”

The splenetic Miami knucklehead Gunplay is the most consistently talented and entertaining piece of Rick Ross's entire Maybach Music empire, but it's tough to imagine him ever getting more famous than he is. He's named Gunplay, he raps exclusively about committing socially reprehensible acts, and he's currently under house arrest for pulling a gun o… More »

Rick Ross – “Hold Me Back Remix” (Feat. Gunplay, Yo Gotti, French Montana & Lil Wayne)

I don't know why this had to be an election-night thing, but Rick Ross decided to, I don't know, celebrate I guess, by releasing a remix of his face-stomping anthem "Hold Me Back" that co-stars the all-star face-stomping team of Gunplay, Yo Gotti, French Montana, and Lil Wayne. It sounds like using your head… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Gunplay 601 & Snort

Five or so years ago, most rap mixtapes consisted of rappers grabbing each other's beats by the handful, competing to see who could do the most damage to "A Milli" or whatever. (But no, seriously, it was almost always "A Milli.") But later -- possibly during Gucci Mane's dizzy 2008-2009 rise, or at whatever moment… More »

Download Gunplay 601 & Snort Mixtape

Here's the other highly-anticipated mixtape that hit the web this weekend, Gunplay's 601 & Snort, a hard-hitting release from the Rick Ross affiliate that mostly answers the critiques lobbied at the Florida rapper. Looking back to something like Bogota Rich, 601 & Snort chronicles Gunplay developing into a force of his own. And,… More »

Maybach Music Group – “Power Circle” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar) Video

Here's the clip for Maybach Music Group's nine-minute posse cut "Power Circle," and it's basically a chronicle of day-to-day MMG living. So, a lot of Miami Heat games, a lot of lounging in Ferraris and drop-ins from Usher, Drake, DJ Khaled and more. Watch below. More »

Maybach Music Group – “Power Circle” (Feat. Kendrick Lamar)

Next month, Rick Ross's Maybach Music Group will release their Self Made 2 compilation, and the album track "Power Circle" features all the rappers currently active in the crew -- Ross, Gunplay, Meek Mill, Wale, Stalley -- as well as on-fire freelance assassin Kendrick Lamar. It is nine minutes long, and it is epic. Liste… More »

Stream or download the tape below, and watch the video for "Jump Out" while you're there. More »

Gunplay – “Jump Out”

For whatever reason, Maybach Music Group's Gunplay isn't given much shine when the Rick Ross-sanctioned squad teams up for releases, which is weird, because Gunplay's over-the-top, wrecking ball approach is easily some of the most exciting music that camp has released (case in point: "Rollin'" and the Inglorious Bastards mixtape, in general). But,… More »

Kendrick Lamar – “Cartoon & Cereal” (Feat. Gunplay)

The enigmatic, frighteningly talented young Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar, who has been absolutely wrecking shit lately, gave us an entirely context-free new song yesterday, and it's a good one. "Cartoon & Cereal" is a weird seven-minute polysyllabic vamp, and Kendrick is one of the few who can pull off a track like that without making… More »
